COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A clear, crisp beer, Kölsch offers a very slight fruity flavor and aroma. It is light gold in color, with a delicate head. This light-bodied beer appeals to nearly everyone who samples it. Expect to enjoy a slight tang in the finish.

Corny, light-bodied, lots of junk floating around. 12 oz bottle, but I’d swear I got the dregs from a keg. No body, not a kolsch. Tastes like a bud light.

Pours a very clean pale yellow with a white head, smells very light as in just a bit of malt and a bit of hops (maybe). Taste is pretty clean and crisp, just a tiny bit of malt and fruitiness, good example of a kolch.

jgb9348 (4488) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Light golden coloured body with a slightly hazy glow and a rich two centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of light malt, a touch of hops and some subdued grassy and herbal notes. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong herbal and grassy character at first with a nice lemon and subdued malt flavour and a pleasant effervescence. Aftertaste shows a nice herbal and grassy taste with the malt coming out strongest, but in a good way. Overall, a very pleasant kolsch with nice flavours throughout and a subdued complexity. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Arrowine in Arlington, Virginia on 06-November-2013 - Thanks Kev!

Bottle into shaker. Hazy pale yellow. Aroma is grass, earthy, maybe a little dank. Taste is lemon, grass, a little sugary in the middle, spritzy finish. Not bad.

monk191 (722) - California, USA - DEC 19, 2013
A little boring, but not bad for a kolsch. Pours an ugly yellow. Smell is a little sweet. Taste is creamier then normal for a kolsch, with a dry finish. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
